Elena and the Secret of Avalor

Elena is introduced in this special as a princess who is trapped inside the Amulet of Avalor. Long ago, her parents and kingdom were taken from her by the evil sorceress, Shuriki. Elena bravely faced the sorceress to protect her little sister, Princess Isabel, and grandparents while Alacazar cast a spell to protect them from Shuriki, but in the process, the Amulet of Avalor pulled her inside its enchanted jewel, saving her life, but imprisoning her at the same time. Alakazar then took the amulet and fled Avalor to find the princess who could free Elena and help her overthrow Shuriki. Decades later, Sofia discovers the truth about the amulet from Alakazar and sets out to restore Elena to her human form and help her return to the Kingdom of Avalor and reclaim it from Shuriki. Sofia succeeds in freeing Elena from the Amulet of Avalor, and aided by Sofia's family, the Royal Family of Enchancia, her little sister, her grandparents, Alacazar's grandson Mateo, the citizens of Avalor, and the Jaquins, Elena destroys Shuriki's wand and reclaims her kingdom from the sorceress, becoming Crown Princess as the elder daughter and heir to the throne.

After Naomi begins to get a better feel for what she needs to do at the party to avoid humiliating Esteban in front of Dona Paloma and the other regents, this causes her to begin to alienate Elena, Mateo, and Gabe in the process, such as having Elena put on a dress that made her very uncomfortable compared to what she already picked out for the party, resulting in them abandoning her as they were fed up with her attitude at that point. However, Naomi realizes her error thanks to Luisa, and asks for their apologies.
